a documentary film

Kickstarter - PROJECT OF THE DAY - Take the journey with us!

What a week! We announced our Sundance premiere, and we've crossed the $10,000 mark in our Kickstarter campaign, with over 150 backers! We've delivered the film to our post-production house for the finishing work, and our master materials are nearly all in. Our composing team is hard at work, and the excitement is building.

If we could figure out a way to make these days 26 hours long, we'd be working two more hours! 

Your support has been inspiring to us. After these many years, we are about to share Sembene's inspiring story with the world. The Sundance premiere ensures a fantastic platform, and we are confident the world will embrace the film. 

But we still have lots of work and we need your help! Please share our message with your friends -- post to Facebook, Twitter, or your social network of choice, and send out emails. Your enthusiasm is the engine of our campaign. We've known since we  embarked upon this process that it would take a village to raise a film like SEMBENE! -- an independent film about a largely forgotten African hero -- and that vision, of a communally supported project, is now coming true.


With our Deep Gratitude,

Samba and Jason
